Re: misunderstood or a-holes?
thx - outstanding observations, hit the nail on the Heads. imho.
in the end, one's gotta do what one's gotta do - he not bz being bored is bz tie-dying.
ya can't make an Alabama Getaway 'til you've made a connection at Terrapin Station.
Did Cassidy get too big for the Partridge Family?
By the end, each member ot Thye Jam had their own contingent, and didn't speak directly in public, at the pub.. 3 different cliques with their do's and don'ts.
But yeah, Paul Weller always was in the moment, it's pretty cool he took The Jam as far as it would go without winding up like a package, like Elvis, drugged up to get through the drag of still having to mach schau for the crowds.
Trible-weight, doped up, 150+ gigs a year, until you suffocate from the machinery of pumping the handle, not a goods idea.
Stuck on stupid.
Hee-haw, grist for the mill. another summer's come and gone...
But Crumb, that Crumb - he broke up the Zap gang -no more mr. nice guy... heh heh.
Read the last ish of Zap, the disbelief from the inner circle at Crumb's drawn out confessions of a sixties icon who's grown up... shrug...
that's all folks.
Here and now, boys... here and now (Aldous Huxley's parrots).
Take it with a nasty if not screamingly ott sample of the last issue of Weirdo, aka "Vierdoh"[
in part why R. Crumb had to leave the country quickly a decade ago, jest in case.
He's back, mostly incognito.
Yeah, the Dead - Crumb connection...
you know he did the Cheap Thrills lp cover ( he still regrets not being paid additional royalties after the fact;
the old story.
He also did the Roots of the Grateful Dead lp cover; he did some squirrely bluegrass sschtick of his own, and shared similar tastes as Garcia though I doubt he liked GD music itself.
Love-Haight, and Nesmith leaving the Monkees in mid-tour with out so much as a by your leave... a serious artist, not hungry for monkee shines anymo'...
twas ever thus. justus...
